The list.....

I have always known that lists work well for me so last week-end I decided to make a list of the projects I wanted to get done.

  1. Finish the machine embroidery quilt                         
  2. Finish the blue and yellow Bargello                          
3. Bind the Labryinth Quilt                                         
4. Make three labels for the finished quilts                 
          5.Cut another Bargello for DIL                                             
6. Make 4 blocks for the Guild's Mystery Quilt          
Machine embroidered and quilted.
 I started with just the white blocks and when I put them together I found the quilt was too light so I selected my favorite patchwork block the "pinwheel" in the "Northern Solitude" by Holly Taylor
Not only was it Quilt-as-you-go.... but design-as-you-go also. The embroidery design blocks have a "machine" quilt design to match .   
Blue/Yellow Bargello
  The Labryinth 
 The hand quilting by Linda Gaudett is absolutely gorgeous 
This is one of the labels done for the quilts
The Brown Bargello strips are all cut  and ready for sewing...
This is the mystery quilt I am making in the guild. It will only be revealed in March 2014 .

On to the guild news now...
We have ended our regular meetings for July and August but we did manage to finish a beautiful quilt for the Mental Health unit at the Yarmouth Hospital.  

Shown in the picture the members who did a fantastic job in hand quilting it
Sally, Clara, Irene and Lennie.

Now we focus our energy on the Quilt show... 

A wonderful event starting July 29th to August 2nd ♥
at the Sacred Heart  Parish Church Saulnierville NS

Hope everyone has a very Happy Canada Day.
